After more than 90 years in business, O'Neal Steel is now the United States' largest family-owned metals service center supplying carbon and alloy steel, stainless steel and aluminum products for companies nationwide. That's an important distinction because it means the family who started the company, and has guided its growth, continues to be instrumental in its operation today.
It means long-term stability, quick decisions, lasting relationships, and an unwavering commitment to quality, service, and innovation – all the things our customers have relied on us for since 1921. In 1921, Kirkman O'Neal borrowed $2,000 from the American Trust Bank to invest in Southern Steel Works in the West End of Birmingham, Alabama.
In 1927, O'Neal bought out his partner and established the company as O'Neal Steel. As a full-line metals distributor and service center – offering a vast array of ferrous and non-ferrous products, scores of locations, technical expertise, and innovative value-added services – O'Neal Steel is committed to providing customers with consistently FAST, ACCURATE, and DEPENDABLE service. Based on the work ethic and business acumen of founder Kirkman O'Neal, dating back to 1921, O'Neal Steel conducts business with the highest degree of integrity, fairness, honesty, and reliability. We maintain stringent standards for quality, and are dedicated to continuous improvement in every aspect of our operations.
As a family-owned company, we also have a strong entrepreneurial spirit and the ability to make quick decisions with minimal red tape – making us nimble, responsive, and innovative in the ways we solve problems, answer customers' needs, and capitalize on opportunities. Above all, our customers and employees are our highest priority. We strive to provide our customers with unprecedented quality, service, and value. And we maintain open communication with our employees, encourage their input, provide the training and guidance they need to be safe and successful, and treat them with respect.
O'Neal Steel's mission is to consistently create value for our customers, employees, and shareholders.
